Meet Rodi

Rodica (Rodi) Frunze is a full time metal clay artist with a contagious passion for exploring what can be accomplished with the medium. Born in the small eastern European country of Moldova, Rodi completed her studies in medicine and became a Dr. of Psychiatry. Her observation of the human experience and the relationship with the environment permeate and inspires her artistry.

As a university lecturer, I spent many years "teaching".  With Jewelry making, I see myself more as a guide than a teacher. This is due in part to the fact that those looking to learn or enhance skills in jewelry making have such a deep passion to learn. They just need to master techniques and skills that help them translate their passion into beautiful adornments.


I feel that creativity is part of who we all are. Most of the time it's cloaked within the depths of our souls, we just need someone to point us in the right direction to realize the limitless depth of our creative potential." - Rodi

Distance Learning Programs

Distance Learning/Online Teaching Programs 

Ongoing individual program: This program takes place online via email and Skype and is adjusted to your level of expertise. It is meant primarily for people who have no access to classes in their area. Your progress depends on the amount of time you can devote to learning in a given month. I will be available to you throughout the month for questions, consultations, and new projects. At the end of a paid month you can stop the program or take a break and sign up for another month.

Project Support: This program takes place online via Skype and may be used as an "Addon" to our Sky Guide Metal Clay tutorials. Working on a new project (or planning to start) and would like some assistance? maybe you have questions on the tools to purchase, which clay best suits your project or maybe you need more detailed explaination or alternative options for one of the sections in our tutorials...


Call For Help: Need a quick 15 min. session to resolve that nagging question, our "Call For Help" program is perfect for eliminating those little doubts or providing reassurance you are on the right track.
